Default 6v92 blower bypass

Curious here - did they put a blower bypass on any of the 6V92's on Wanderlodges? I have seen a few photos of them on the 8v's, but my 6v doesn't have one.

I swapped in a brand new engine,oil pan to turbo and the new engine came with a bypass blower.
The old engine had a major explosion that ruined the heads and block.

Got it. Just pondering doing this on mine. The parts are cheap but it looks like the blower and turbo need to come out to swap the parts. I wonder how much of a difference it would really make.

I could see no diff.
This was on my personal coach,the engine dropped a valve on the mobile Bay bridge.
The valve went into the port on the liner and when the piston found that valve everything went BOOM!


Anyway,i put a new engine in and drove it 5 more years or so,i could see no diff from before.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Maybe it would work better if boost came up quicker with a better turbo. There is just no power under the curve in this thing.

adjust the throttle delay valve.
Or,put a jet in the hot side of the turbo and inject some LPG into the turbo,that will spoil it up.
Or NOX,that will really spool it up!

The throttle delay is next on my list! I want to take it out completely, but I suppose I can just adjust it. LP isn't going to happen. Honestly, I think getting the throttle delay out of the picture and giving it a smidge more fuel up top would keep me happy. I'm not opposed to an injector change at some point here, too.
